A new line of robot collision sensors that prevent damage to the robot as well as parts and molds is new from SAS Automation, LLC, Xenia, Ohio. The sensor sends a signal to stop the robot when it detects an obstacle. SAS End-Of-Arm-Tooling junction boxes simplify installing collision sensors on the production floor. The new sensors come in different configurations for high-speed and other robots. While most of the sensors are pneumatic, a spring-loaded version can be used when compressed air is not available.
